When you say "none of the hooks were barbed", does that mean that the barbs were still present (NOT mashed down)?

I am always astonished when hook into line in the river and pull tackle out of the hole. I would say 90% or better of the hooks I pull out of the river still have barbs on them. Crazy! I didn't even fish with barbs on my hook when I was an irresponsible teenager, but whatevs.

Ya those mondo beads guys have been using the last few years looks as big as basketballs don't they? Seems to be originating from the flypole contingent, but that's just my observation. Anyway when the water is big and/or heavily colored, bigger brighter presentations seem to help so I can understand the utility of the megabead from that standpoint.
